The Sixer Sense and the 2012-13 NBA Season

It’s been an interesting summer in the 76ers world. I was at first baffled by stuff like signing Spencer Hawes and Kwame Brown but then the Sixers pretty much made up for it by getting Andrew Bynum in a surprising trade. We all know this by now.

A week ago or so I posted about some off the court stuff to look forward to concerning the Sixers. Welp, I want to make some notes about what to look forward to here at The Sixer Sense. It’s a post about what I plan to do with this site.

Great group of writers

I can’t stress this enough. We’ve got “rookies” and we’ve got “pros”. In the end, they all love the 76ers and that’s all that matters. And though our staff has changed over the course of a few months, you’ll still receive quality content. While this isn’t the first time I’ve been editor of a site that was part of a network, it’s the first time I’ve had a staff (I’ve had the benefit of being able to pick out my staff too!).

And so, you will hear from each of them, all season long. Each writer has a voice and I strongly believe it’s very important to give each writer a chance to shine. A chance to shine in front of their family and friends. A chance to shine in front of the blogging world. A chance to grow to pursue even greater levels of writing. It starts here for some.

I want to take this time to say there’s always room for new writers. If you want to write because you have a passion for it and need an outlet, here’s a chance.

Anyway, I’ve been working hard to make sure each writer has the spotlight. Here’s some examples:

Game Previews/Recaps

Each writer will take turns bringing you awesome pre and post game coverage of all 82 games and even the playoffs.

Weekly Reviews

Started by former staff writer Kyle Bright, each writer will have the chance to do in depth about the team’s previous week of action. They will also give their thoughts about the upcoming week.

Breaking Down the Atlantic Division

The Atlantic Division is perhaps the best division in the NBA right now. And it deserves constant coverage, in my opinion. And so, each week we’ll look at the previous week of action for all 5 teams, key games between any two teams in the division, and previewing the upcoming week.

Red, White, and Blue Power Rankings

A series I started and keep up with, I rank the teams of the NBA who’s color scheme is red, white, and blue. I look at recent news, big performances of the week, and then I go in depth about each team and a solid preview for the upcoming week.

Social Media

I added a couple of pages on the site to help you follow the FanSided family and 76ers family on social media. We’re on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Google+. So be sure to follow us away from the site.

Awesome Team Coverage

We here at The Sixer Sense and FanSided pride ourselves in putting out quality content that you will not find anywhere else. I personally believe the 76ers don’t get enough local media coverage as they are usually in the shadow of the Phillies, Eagles, and Flyers. For me, it’s motivation to make some noise about the 76ers. We want this site to be the first one you look up in the morning, noon, and night. After hearing news about the team, you’ll want to come here to see the details and hear awesome opinions about the news. That’s the goal I have for the site in general.

So that’s about it. That’s what I’ve got for this site. Constant material being whipped out by fans of the game/team written by fans of the game/team. I’m dedicated to making this a bigger success than it already is. And if I can’t do the job, you can be sure I’ll find somebody who can.

On behalf of myself, the rest of the staff, and FanSided, thank you for your continued support and we’re looking forward to the 2012-2013 NBA season.

Are you ready?
